AWS ECR is a fully-managed Docker container registry that makes it easy for developers to store, manage, and deploy Docker container images.

Specify your AWS credentials

To deploy to your AWS account, continuousphp needs access keys for IAM users. You can specify them in the 1st step of the project setup or simply when adding a new pipeline to your existing project.

AWS IAM credentials

Configure the Packaging

After having configured the tests in the second step, you can now enable Docker in the Packaging configuration.

AWS packing

Configure the Deployment

Once you have added the IAM credentials and you defined Docker as packaging method, you can configure the deployment in the 4th step of the project/pipeline setup.

Use environment variables to define your tags

continuousphp provides you with a set of built-in environment variables that you can use to define your tags. Moreover you may want to truncate those variables then you can use the following syntax :

  • CPHP_GIT_COMMIT : 225ff5830d804093869e5d8b6516aa7b
  • ${CPHP_GIT_COMMIT} : 225ff5830d804093869e5d8b6516aa7b
  • ${CPHP_GIT_COMMIT:0,7} : 225ff58
  • ${CPHP_GIT_COMMIT:7} : 30d804093869e5d8b6516aa7b
  • ${CPHP_GIT_COMMIT:-12} : 5d8b6516aa7b


Make sure that the IAM credentials you provide only have the strict minimum of permissions. For instance the provided IAM credentials shouldn't be able to erase your ECR repository.

And that's it! You just configured your Dockerfile to be deployed with AWS ECR.
